EXHIBITS & EVENTS

WORKSHOPS

THE 28TH ANNUAL CSL STUDENT ART EXHIBITION

Dichroic Glass Workshop

April 10-24, 2017 Opening Reception: Tuesday, April 18, 2017 6:00-8:00pm

The Central Suburban League, CSL, Art Exhibition joins the twelve Central School League high schools through the visual arts in an exhibit at TAC. Participating high schools include: Evanston, Deerfield, Glenbrook North, Glenbrook South, Highland Park, Maine East, Maine South, Maine West, New Trier, Niles North, Niles West, and Waukegan High School. The student talent on display is truly remarkable.

May 2- June 25, 2017 Opening: TBD This exhibition focuses on three prominent Chicago artists (Gladys Nilsson, Sergio Gomez and Eleanor Spiess-Ferris) whose work uses the human figure for meaning. Many artists who work figuratively are passionately interested in the forms and shapes reflected in the human figure, or desire an accurate replication of the realistic appearance of the human body. The human figure has attracted artists throughout history, whether it be used symbolically, such as the prehistoric cave paintings and carvings; or aesthetically, to convey beauty, such as works by Rubens and Ingres. These artists, Gladys Nilsson, Sergio Gomez and Eleanor Spiess-Ferris, are less interested in a depiction of an observed reality, and instead extract meaning from the use of the human figure and convey their varied intentions through that meaning. While their work relies on our universal understanding of what it means to be human, their purposes for the figure differ greatly. The figure is used as metaphor in these works to reflect each individual artist’s interests and focus. Each artist has used the human figure for many years in their body of work, and could choose to portray the figure realistically, but they instead shape the figure with an individual eye, giving a strong sense of emotion and meaning to the figure.

THE LANDSCAPE: RHYTHMS, PATTERNS & FORMS IN CONTRAST May 2- June 25, 2017 Opening: TBD A landscape can be depicted in many ways; Michael A. Smith and Paula Chamlee photographs reach beyond the classic vista. Their images depict the lands’ rhythms, patterns and forms. Michael and Paula use their large format film view cameras to capture images that abide by the wisdom of Minor White: “One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.” Amy Perlmutter and Laurence J. Segil, students at TAC, are forging their own visions of the landscape. Larry uses his vintage cameras, lenses and printing process to render his vision of the landscape as it might have been. In contrast, Amy views the world as a palette of vivid colors to be captured by her contemporary digital imagery techniques.

TAC POLICIES CANCELLATIONS Classes are cancelled when enrollment minimums are not reached. We try to notify students of a cancellation a week prior to the start of each session, but often cancellations are done at the last minute. Students will be notified by e-mail of any cancellations. If a class is cancelled, students may opt to receive a credit on account or the full tuition will be refunded in the same form by which payment was originally received. Please allow three weeks from the start of the session for processing. TAC reserves the right to change instructors/classes, or to discontinue any class, without incurring obligations. MISSED CLASSES A make-up week is scheduled at the end of each session in the event a class must be cancelled by TAC or the instructor. The make-up week is considered part of the term. No refunds, credits or make-ups will be given for classes missed by the student (i.e. a student “no show”). DROPPED CLASSES Tuition is refundable for all classes and workshops according to the schedule printed on the following page. Classes dropped after the first day of the session – regardless if that class has met or not – are only eligible for a credit on account for the cost of tuition.

There is a limit of two classes per student per year that may be dropped with a refund or credit due to non-medical reasons.
